MapObjects LT 2 offers advanced thematic mapping capabilities, including improved labeling.

Users will enjoy the new features of MapObjects LT 2, such as its more advanced GIS capabilities, ease of use, and data accessibility. With MapObjects LT 2, you can take advantage of many new and expanded functions including spatial queries; multiple rendering; thematic rendering using classifications, enhanced labeling, dot density, and graduated symbols; and helpful legend, toolbar, and scalebar controls designed to make application development easier than ever. These controls are based on the same controls that are used in ArcExplorer, Esri's freely distributed GIS data browser.

Esri has extended the data support provided with MapObjects LT. MapObjects LT 2 offers direct support for native data formats ranging from standard GIS formats (ArcInfo coverages and Esri shapefiles) to CAD formats (DXF, DWG, and DGN), and a variety of image formats including GeoTIFF, JPEG, and MrSID image compression.

MapObjects LT 2 also includes the latest edition of Esri Data & Maps, a multivolume CD collection including over 3 gigabytes of ready-to-use data. This valuable resource consists of data for roads, census boundaries, ZIP Codes, counties, states, countries, and much more.

MapObjects LT 2 components can be used in any standard Windows development environment such as Visual Basic, Visual C++, Delphi, PowerBuilder, and others.
